# Converting Decimal Numbers To Text With Dot Numbers

May 27, 2006
we work with both Lotus 123 and Excel 2003. Lotus will be gone next year, but for now, the official mean to publish our reports is Lotus. With my work, I copy/paste a Lotus page to Excel. I use the following macro to convert Lotus format numbers (which Excel considers as text) to real numbers:

Sub ForceToNumber()

Dim wSheet As Worksheet

For Each wSheet In Worksheets

With wSheet

. Range("IV65536") = vbNullString

.Range("IV65536").Copy

.UsedRange.PasteSpecial xlPasteValues, xlPasteSpecialOperationAdd

End With

Next wSheet

End Sub

Source : http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showthre...087#post184087. The problem is that I need to send back this data in Lotus. Excel considers decimal numbers with a coma as real numbers and numbers with a dot as a text. This previous macro fixes that. However, Lotus works the other way. Only numbers with a dot are considered real numbers. So I would need to find a way to code a macro that converts any numbers in the Excel sheet to a number with a dot. It's a bit like doing the opposite operation.

I have an excel sheet with a row of numbers example below. These numbers represent the length of time that a telephone call was. The problem is they are decimal numbers (units of 100) but they represent seconds and minutes of a phone call which change up one number when the seconds hit 60 ...

I'm looking for the VBA command for this function. I tried just recording a macro in where I perform the task but it didn't record anything. Tried it several times even.

I am receiving a monthly breakdown of postage costs by department but the values are received in a text format of 1 234,56.

I need to convert these to numbers.

I have replaced the comma with a full and tried to use =substitute(cell ref," ","") to remove the spaces in those numbers exceeding £1000 but this does not seem to work.

I have five columns on an Excel Spreadsheet with questions in each of the columns.

Below each question is a number value. In the rows below these number values the users will be answering the questions with Y or N. When the spreadsheet is complete I would like to replace the Y's with the number value shown under the question and replace the N's with a number value of zero (0).

Is there any easy way to convert these?

I want to convert numbers that were entered into a spreadsheet with commas in them. Since they were entered with commas of course excel reads them as text.

How can I convert them to numbers so I can use formulas.

I am wondering if there is any way to "force" a number to have three decimal places instead of two and still have that number valued as a number for use in formulas later (like AVERAGE, etc.).

What I have is a combination of HLOOKUPs, IF statements, and Conditional Formatting.

I have a Master Grades sheet and individual Class sheets. I use an HLOOKUP, matching a Student Number in both sheets, and looking in the Class sheet for the P/F indicator. If the indicator is a F, the HLOOKUP is to return the Final Grade from the Class sheet and input that into the Master Grades sheet, forced to three decimal places (whereas the numbers in the Class sheets are at two decimal places) If the indicator is P, the HLOOKUP simply returns the Final Grade from the Class sheet and inputs it into the Master Grades sheet with two decimal places.

I have the failure grades forced to three decimal places so that the Conditional Formatting in the Master Grades sheet highlights the failed grades for teachers and anyone else can see right away that a student failed, but the number still allows the Master Grades sheet to calculate the overall AVERAGE for the student as well as the AVERAGE for that class.

If any of this is not quite clear, please ask and I can further expand on what I am doing.

Here is the code I have right now that is not working correctly (and I know why it's not): ....

We are compiling annual receipts - using Excel spreadsheet numbers to merge into a Word document, but we are losing the cents in the merged document. When we tried converting to text, the cents were lost as well. Example 450.00 becomes 450 - how do we keep the cents - 450.00?

Is there anyway of converting the output (which is 7 and in text form) to a useable number format so that I can take advantage of the VLOOKUP function (instead of getting a #N/A)....

I am using an ODBC database connection to input data into an excel file. When I input the data excel stores the numeric data as text and puts a ' in front of the number. There is an exclamation mark beside the cell which allows me to convert the data back to numeric format. I need excel to do this conversion for me automatically when new data is added to the file.

From a list of numbers I would like to delete values that have cents so only those transactions with a .00 amount are displayed

For example

34.95

21.88

21.00

56.00

45.77

Only those valaues ending in .00 will list. I tried filtering but I think there most be a function(s) string that might work or at least filter out the values with cents

I have an Excel workbook with around 100 worksheets. All of them have similar columns, but the values are stored as text. The length of columns and missingness is different in different worksheets. I will be grateful if any of you could suggest a VBA that could convert the numbers stored as text back to numbers. I have been looking for an answer for a while, but cant seem to find one that automatically looks at every worksheet and converts text into number.

I have a text file with rows and columns of numbers ranging from 1-4 digits that I'd like to import/copy into Excel with each number being in its own cell. But whenever I copy/try to import, Excel splits all of the 3-4 digit numbers up into single digit numbers. The text file has 10,000+ columns (each number occupies two columns so I have half of that amount in numbers) and 300+ lines.

Is the file simply too large for Excel to handle or is there a way I can do this?

In the ID column of the attached excel file whenever I convert the numbers stored as text to numbers it results in a weird transformation.

e.g. an ID of 480610141001 becomes 4.8061E+11. When I do the same process in the name column, which has similar numbers, it will give the correct result following the same process.

In the example above, I would like to do a vlookup in column C that matches the digits in column A to those in column F, with the output being the corresponding value in column G. I believe it involves the left function but not sure how to really use it here.

I'm working on a spreadsheet with about 400 rows and 10 columns. All the numbers in the columns are formatted as text, which doesn't allow me to use AutoSum. I have selected the cells and formatted them as number with no decimals, but AutoSum still doesn't work because the formatting hasn't changed and they're still formatted as text. I know if I double click each cell, the cell changes the format from text to number, but that will take a lot of time to change 400 cells in each of the 10 columns. What can I do to quickly reformat the cells from text to number?

I am looking for a VBA to sort rows which include actual numbers and text representing decomposed CTQs (or procedures in IT development)

Code:

Col A Col B

1Billing Accuracy

2Billing Time

3Credit Check Accuracy

4Credit Check Time

2.1Bill preparation

[Code]....

This is the order in which the data is copied and saved from worksheets in which they are developed. Note that 3 rows (8.1.2.1 through 8.1.2.3) are below 8.1.3 (because the three come from Worksheet 8.1.2 which came after worksheet 8.1). The first four rows came from a Top Level Worksheet. I would like to see them intermixed but in proper order.

See attached file. A colleague is downloading rows of data from a website which contains a number field Excel is currently treating as Text after being pasted in. My spreadsheet includes just a sample of the many rows of data however as you can see the VALUE function refuses to convert these text values to numbers. How these might be converted and why the VALUE function refuses to work in this case?

I am trying to find a way of counting decimal numbers if, say, they begin with 3.

For example, I might have 3.33, 4.1, 3.0, 5.65, 3.8, 3.7, 3.33, etc.

I want to count anything that begins with 3 (3.33, 3.0, etc). Using the data above the answer would be 5 ...5 numbers that begin with a 3.

If this possible?

There doesn't appear to be the facility with Countif. I don't want to truncate the data (the spreadsheet already is quite extensive). I have tried using =SUMPRODUCT((Y$2:Y$170 >=3)*(Y$2:Y$170<=3.9)) but this will return an answer only when there is a complete set of data within cells within the range.

I would have a preliminary data, a number, on sheet1. The final data would be on sheet2.

In the case where there is a whole number as the preliminary data, the data would remain the same as the final output. (eg. 248 --> 248)

In the case where there is a number with a decimal, I need a function where it looks at the original number as two sets of WHOLE numbers. (Eg. 248.30 --> 248 and 30). Where the digits to the left of the decimal remains the same and the digits to the right would be divided by x (in this case, 10). The final output would be 2483 (where 248 is the same and the 30 is divided by 10.

Since I am using an older version of excel, I cannot use quotient. I know that I would be using the vlookup function and perhaps an if function. however, I do not know how to separate the numbers in regards to the decimal.

My coworker's excel program is converting all data to decimals. He enters in 2004 as a date and it makes it 2.004. I opened the same file on my computer and it works fine. I have done all fo the formatting to try and make it a number or a general field. The general field is not showing a preview as if there is some error overriding the whole program. He has some other numbers that he has already entered as currency and they work fine. I was able to do a =2004 and it showed as 2004 of course.
